November...30 Days Of Thankfulness, Day Twenty-Four

Day twenty-four of #30daysofThankfulness:

My pastors.

I am so very blessed to have not one but TWO amazing pastors. They have been such a great influence on me and they have helped me grow closer to Christ.

They have both been a BIG part of my life and I am SO Thankful to God for them!

Brother Gary has been such an amazing, funny, happy, loving, God fearing pastor and friend. I love the way he teaches and the way he makes everybody smile. The church I go to now is a little church in Lavaca AR. I never would have thought that I would end up loving it as much as I do. A lot of my love for our little country church is because of the people there, they are ALL such WONDERFUL Christians! But the BIGGEST reason that I love it there is because Brother Gary teaches me (and the rest of our church) about the truth. That truth is sometimes VERY hard to preach. I know that but I also know that no matter what, Brother Gary is ALWAYS going to preach truth and wisdom and I am VERY Thankful for that and for him!

Brother Kent has ALWAYS been there, he is such a firm believer in Jesus Christ, and I am SO Thankful to have had him as my pastor for so long. He baptized me! I remember that journey so well. I remember talking with him about what it means to be saved, what it means to live a life for God and what it means to give your whole life to the Lord Jesus Christ. He was there to baptize me and I am so Thankful for him being there to help me as a young believer. Brother Kent has been such a great influence on me! Brother Kent has been a friend. He was never just a pastor to anyone, he has always been a friend to everyone! He has stood firm in his faith no matter what. Brother Kent has taught me so much truth about God and who God is. He taught me that God is a God of love but He is also a God of wrath. I am very Thankful to him for teaching me that truth because as a young Christian you're prone to thinking that God is a God of love and He most certainly is but He is also a God of wrath and we need to be taught that!

Thank you God for blessing me with TWO amazing pastors and friends!
